Happy birthday Doug


Today is my stepdad, Doug’s birthday. I’ve really been missing him a lot lately. I miss our conversations and I miss his funny stories.

Here is a photo of him and and mom around the time they first met. I love this photo of them. I love the smiles on both of their faces. The old guy photo-bombing in the background is pretty great too.

I was getting ready for work this morning and was putting the last touches of makeup on when this song played on my iTunes. I had to re-apply, needless to say.

Doug often speaks to me via music. I know that may sound weird to some of you reading this but it is as real to me as you are on the other side of that computer screen you are reading this on. The right song will come on at the right moment in a very obvious way and I know it is Doug. That is what happened this morning. It is really nice to know that he is there.
